Update on Indiana's Statewide Strategic Plan for the Health Science Sector

(Get a copy of the plan HERE)


At the Indiana Health Industry Forum Annual Meeting held earlier this month in Indianapolis, IHIF President Kristin Jones offered a short update on the progress around the Statewide Strategic Plan. The plan, which focuses on Capital Formation, Research & Technology Commercialization, Business Development, Education, and Public Policy, is an industry-driven guidance document that dictates much of the Forum's daily activities. Please join us as we take a deeper look at the progress that has been made, the challenges that remain, and what can realistically be accomplished in the next two and a half years.
